of bankustomers are blowing their talk, with talk of a 10% tax on deposit the money, has a lot of angry customers storming the atm machines but the government has closed banks to avid a bank run, a keeping them close until they sort this out, but the tax is till coming. for cyprus it is about the cost of staying in the euro club, never mind how average i citizes there are getting club. but this is about taxing assets there. something with which we should all be very familiar here. no uncle sam has not hacked into our bank accounts -- yet, but he made a b-line for our other assets like next time we try to sell our home, and obamacare wants 3.8% of the profit for medicare tax. juss like it is tacking medical devices for what it deems exception atrogen -- generous healthy insurance policy. so what is such a big leap going from hitting you up for dollars off fur devices, and hitting you up for dollars off your deposits. none, i tell you cyprus is not isolated. i am telling you, cyprus is a test case, it is starting, it was not only liberal the world over watching. now big brother, everywhere salivati
a bank at tax plan. now the risks of bank runs and bank collapses mount in this tiny country. we are about to bring you live report from cyprus. but cyprus may have an ace in the hole. it's called russia. the parliament is going hat in hand to russia to save its financial system in return for ownership of its natural gas resources. so do i have this right? the russian money-laundering thugs can save cyprus and maybe europe and maybe the global financial markets as well? it's a very scary thought. however, here at home, american business leaders speaking in one voice in a new campaign to push pro growth corporate tax reform. i like it. the polls show it. there's too much talk about root canal, dent and budge cutting. we need growth, we need optimism. we need "the kudlow report." it begins right now. >>> first up this evening, let's go live to cnbc chief international correspondent, michelle caruso cabrera who joins us from cyprus with the details. good evening, michelle. >> reporter: good evening, larry. it's been a day of high drama here in cyprus. just a few hours ago, the parli
his own words. he says investments, and he means government spending. meanss revenue, and he taxes. he says dr. lincoln is in the library, and he means, "distract michelle. i'm going out for a smoke." remember, republicans agreed to raise taxes, and in exchange, we're supposed to be taking an ax to the budget. he wants to raise taxes again. remember this the next time some journalist asks a republican, cassette and are you saying you would not take $1 in tax hikes in exchange for $10 in budget cuts?"-- "are you saying you would not take $1 in tax hikes in exchange for $10 in budget cuts?" we are the indians and the obama administration are andrew jackson. we have been through this before. the democrats tripled the budget. it is not true that it was reagan's tax cuts that led to the deficit. the problem was for every additional dollar that came in to the internal revenue service, the democrats were spending another $3. then reagan's knuckle head of a vice president, the first george bush, unable to learn from the first kick of a mule, made the exact same deal with democrats. he raised t

in this -- in this town when what he's doing is redefining terms. so, he's redefining tax reform not the traditional word of tax reform, meaning you lower rates and use that to close loopholes to lower rates. he wants to use it to say, well, we're going to close loopholes to pay for more spending. >> congressman tom price and why no budget. what was his explanation, why he has no budget. the senate has a budget and the house has a budget. >> again, he had a very difficult time answering that question. >> what did he say? >> i mean, it was like, look, you've listened to him. he's got no substantive answer when tom price-- >> what did he say, i'm too busy or they're working on it? >> look, it's going to come and avoiding eye contact, a couple of weeks. well, it's late already and he was challenged in the meeting, are you presenting this late on a rope-a-dope effort after we passed the budget that paul ryan is leading us on? it's all of those sorts of things and here this was a big attempt to try and bring people together. i thought, look, our members respect the presidency and we're respectful of him in th
of dollars of emergency crash and creditors impose onetime tax of 3% on all bank deposits under $130,000. >> going deep here. >> the tax could be closer to 10% on people who have over $640,000 in the bank. that's according to the "the wall street journal" this morning. people stood in long lines over the weekend to withdraw money before the policy went into effect and now russian president vladimir putin is calling the move, quote, unfair, unprofessional and dangerous. russian citizens make up the majority of billions of euros held in cypress bank. this is important. >> cypress. >> who cares about cyprus? >> come on, cyprus. are you telling me if somebody sneezes in cyprus we get a cold than on the nasdaq? >> tell us why. >> we have a cold on the nasdaq. the nasdaq is going down today. not too many people care about cyprus but a way the europeans have screwed up the bailout by getting the people to pay a part of the cost. you could have a run on the bank and europeans say why do i have my money in this bank? might be a tax on me next. it shows that europe is still a mess, that they h

to include tax expenditures, a large part of our federal expenditures in the tax code. and the military also needs to be part of deficit reduction. we also need to do this in a select way. these across-the-board sequestration cuts are not how we as well govern. we should be specific as to which programs are priority programs and which programs can be cut. i think that's where we are trying to find common ground between the democrats and republicans. there are discussions taking place among my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to try to find that common area of agreement. >> shannon: we all as americans wish you the best. i want to give you a chance to respond to criticism from jeff sessions. he says the senate budget, proposed and voted on by the committee is full of gimmicks and raises taxes by $1 trillion and increases spending and has no plan and makes no claim to ever balance the budget? >> well, the democratic budget from the senate -- it has more deficit reduction than the simpson-bowles proposal that we all thought was the right framework, just 2 years ago, so i think it is seriou
to raise taxes in virginia in order to deal with transportation problems. it's also worth noting that people are noting the absence of those two, and the presence of people like mitt romney who has said he's never going to run again, and a lot of republicans think he has admitted ran a campaign with some flaws along the donald trump and sarah palin raises questions about the absence of mcdonnell and chris christie. there will be a straw poll here. it doesn't mean a heck of a lot other than republicans are already keeping score. and one more thing, jon. yesterday when we were talking about deliberate irs taxes, i said one in ten were delinquent, it's actually one in a hundred. i don't want the irs angry at me. so made a mistake and cleaned it up. jon: all right. one in one hundred, and as you said, we'll see who shows up to the next cattle call for conservatives. carl cameron, thank you. jenna: well, an outpouring of reaction to the newly-elected leader of the catholic church. pope francis planning an inaugural mass in the sistine chapel. he told a crowd of some 100,000 people in

.85 trillion, half through spending cuts and half through tax hikes. the republican plan, paul ryan plan, would cut the deficit $4.6 trillion in ten years and includes repealing obamacare. the hope going through the legislative process they might be able to find compromise to strike some sort of deal. >> we need to put americans back to work. that's our first priority. deficit reduction i would put as the second priority and one that is coupled with economic growth the so i think we can do both. make sure we have deficit reduction but don't cut too much too fast. >> reporter: bottom line, bill, american people are seeing this over and over again. republicans and democrats fighting on both sides of the aisle and perhaps, they can come together for a grand bargain but just doesn't appear to be the case right now. as they grapple with the budget, keep in mind that two weeks away they have to come up with a continuing resolution by march 27. bill: as ryan says, at least there is baseline for comparison between the two sides. we'll get into that in just a moment here. thank you, kelly wright on the
this week showing a wide gap, indeed, remains over spending and taxes. plans on the table both sides are taking to the airwaves to try to make their cases. peter doocy is live in washington. peter, does it look like either side is ready to give any ground? >> reporter: it depends on which interview you with a watched this morning, john boehner told abc news president obama already got the new taxes he wanted back in january so more taxes shouldn't even be on the table this time around, but another remember can bob corker indicated on fox that new taxes could be part of the discussion if democrats agree to serious entitlement reform. >> think republicans, if they true entitlement reform, would be glad to look at tax reform that generates additional revenues. that doesn't mean increasing rates. it means closing loop homes and arranging our tax system so we have economic growth. i think we've been saying that from day one. >> reporter: the house budget committee chairman paul ryan says he thinks president's trip to capitol hill to meet with republicans is a good start but he thinks the
, again, if the president wants to let our unwillingness to raise taxes get in the way, then we're not going to be able to set differences aside and focus on what we agree on. and my take away was that. >> frank and candid are always interesting diplomatic code words when year overseas. thiser boehner in today's "the washington post." for all of washington's focus on the president's outreach to republicans, it's his engagement with members of his own party n that will determine whether we succeed dealing with the challenges facing our economy. the fact is there are folks on both side of the aisle that talk a good game on the idea of reforming medicare or doing something about social security, nobody wants to own the plan. they want to agree to it reluctantly to a plan brought up by the other side because here's another fact. medicare and social security are universally popular and even in a republican primary getting caught messing around with social security without a reason is bad politics. so any time you hear this from either side, the other side needs to lead, translation
. they think if we just squeeze squeeze, squeeze, even as we lower taxes at the high end that will create prosperity. that's really a pipe dream. >> john: i'm confused. the president said he doesn't want to touch medicare at all but because of a divided government we might have to do things we don't like. >> no, he said if we want to get revenues they'll bring up topics like the entitlement issues that we will have to discuss. he was not backing away from my view a solid commitment to maintaining it. he said those of us who are supporters of medicare and social security have to focus on maintaining solvency and stability going forward. he said, this was music to our ears. he said social security was not part of the debt issue. it is a totally different issue. to the extent that we get involved. social security at all it has to be about that problem and it's solvent and committed to that 75 year window we've been committed to. as far as medicare, with what wave' done with the affordable care act we're in good shape for the next ten years. but after that even the cbo numbers show with the d
taxes. there are less taxes going into the government. it is because the government cannot balance our budget, cannot act responsibly, cannot work together. host: paul on the air twitter p the " t " huffington post," -- sing on the elderly in theirr of americans 50s at risk of hunter grew by 40%. according to "the huffington post," rising gas prices as low as rising electricity is only exacerbating the trend among some of america's elderly. mike is on the phone in chicago. our question is what is the government's role when it comes to hunker in america? caller: i am a long time listener and a first-time caller. this kind of stuck in there with me. the problem with government is waste.ot watching the you have a lot -- you have an onslaught of people using link texting on iphones. they are taking advantage of the system. if our government to find out who really need it and give it to them -- people who can work should work. host: thank you for the call. to not be a stranger. if you have access to the internet, "the washington post" has this story on their website. the focus is on one rho
way, both by smart cuts, by closing all of those tax loopholes for high-income people. by the way, mitt romney and paul ryan talked about during the campaign -- those tax breaks are all still there. by eliminating those tax breaks, we can take a balanced approach to reducing the long-term deficit. which is an issue. but you shouldn't sacrifice economic growth now, on the altar of deep cuts and an austerity philosophy. >> i want to bring the panel in because you know, the congressman talks about making smart cuts now. what's in it for democrats to do any grand bargaining at all. any savings that would be applied in cutting the budget, would not be applied to their priorities. it's not as if you're going to reduce government spending on x and spend it more on the poor, spend it more on things democrats care b. why are democrats arguing for a budget at all? >> you and i don't agree on this, joanne. i think long-term, as congressman van holland says, you have to create a sustainable budget path. with the baby boomers, retirement and all sorts of other huge coming costs, we need to hav
a balanced approach, combining tax hikes and spending cuts. both sides say they're far from a long-term deal, notwithstanding what the media is calling the president's charm offensive. mike, what are the president and his allies saying about possible budget? >> we're told by a source that president obama told senate republicans, quote, our task is to find common ground, and send a signal that business is on the move. we're told the president expressed interest in new tax revenue and also tax reform. as for senate democrats, their leaders are blasting the proposal that house republicans put forward on the budget, and author paul ryan. >> this budget was roundly defeated last november. i can imagine why they don't get a new dance step here. so until they get off this ryan republican march madness, all this magic he tried to do, we can't work together. if we're going to pass a budget. >> the house speaker, john boehner, the other key leader here on capitol hill, put a marker down saying, no more tax hikes, and no more gimics. >> but republicans reading the details of the democrats' budget say,

unwillingness to raise taxes get in the way, then we're not going to be able to set differences aside. >> so they are trying to act inflexible and it seems that the president has held on to his guns. >> right, and two of those statements, the two statements john boehner made, aren't exactly true, to be very xartable about it. the president does care about fiscal balance. he's put a deal on the table. he just doesn't think we need to get there as quickly as the republicans claim we get there. and in terms of unlocking our energy, we are closer to energy independence than we've ever been. they may want to drill in places the president doesn't. but we're making a lot of progress on energy. i think eric cantor's statement put his finger on it. the republicans in the house in particular, and we're going to see how republicans in the senate do, that the republicans in the house are simply not willing to raise another penny in taxes from well-off people as part of the effort to balance the budget. in fact, the ryan budget cuts the top income tax rate from 39.6% to 25% without explaining all the mid
but kept the tax benefits to balance the budget, which isn't balanced. gives tax cuts to people that make a million dollars a year, cuts medicaid benefits, privatizes medicare benefits. this is crazy. the problem with paul ryan is people don't believe him any more, simply don't believe him. he may be another sarah palin, his day has come and gone. it is hard to take him seriously if you're a policy person. you can't be a successful conservative or successful liberal, the numbers have to work, you have to be taken seriously, you have to be truthful. that budget was a propaganda document, not a serious budget. i was very surprised at that. >> steve, what did you make of that, insofar as the ryan budget, over 40% of savings are based on repealing the president's health care law which is law of the land, being enacted in over 25 states. is he a serious political figure, a serious policy figure in republican circles? >> he is a serious political figure and a serious policy figure in the republican party, but the governor's criticism about the budget is spot on. its formulations are not based i
significant cuts to entitlements, something democrats oppose, and democrats want new tax revenue, a deal breaker for republicans. republican leader mitch mcconnell put responsibility back on the president. >> his job is to deliver the members of his party. >> reporter: for now lawmakers appear no closer to a deal but they are more optimistic about the possibility of compromise. today president obama is taking a break from budget talks and traveling to illinois. he'll be focusing on another of his big priorities, alternative energy. richard? >> putting those walking shoes on the side after a very busy couple of days for the president. thank you, danielle. >>> a fiery exchange between dianne feinstein and texas's senator, ted cruz. during a senate judiciary committee on banning assault-style weapons, cruz who opposes any weapons ban, questioned the constitutionality of the bill. a sharp clash resulted between feinstein and the tea party freshman. >> namely, would she consider it constitutional for congress to specify that the first amendment shall apply only to the following books and shal

for virginia, which required them to raise taxes i think on the gas tax or somehow to pay for these highway improvements and god knows northern virginia particularly needs them. no, because he did that and made a deal with the federal government, the department of transportation, he was not invited to cpac. but all of the rest of the crazies were. and it turned out, there was a big split yesterday in the message. -- the messages given to cpac. first of all rand paul scale in hot off of his drone filibuster and said the party needs a shakes-up and a new cleansing. >> the got of old has grown stale and moss-covered. i don't think we need to name any names. do we? >> you know who he is referring to. >> our party is inc. covered by an incounsistent approach to freedom. the new g.o.p. will need to embrace liberty in the comic and the personal sphere. >> which is sort of saying all much those emphasis on the social issues? right? liberty on the personal spear means get the government out of my bedroom. this is the libertarian speaking. when he says, i don't need
taxes, do they believe that the democrats will just cave with no compromise? >> alex, you may know i was one of the few republicans who was saying that we a bit more revenue, but also through tax reform. i made that case all the way up to the fall. and when begot up to the fiscal cliff, i was hoping that the agreement would incorporate spending reductions as well. it was $73 billion of increased taxes. so i voted no for it. i'm really asking me democratic colleagues to help us address spending, our budget goes up by about 3.45%. both of them go up, it's just that the democrats are going up really far higher. >> but representative ridgeal, are there others who are like minded like you in the party? how many? >> but there are some, but i do want to make the point who are that it truly is spending that's driving this train and i was very disappointed in our president when after the election, he put it this way, he said we need to begin to take a look at how we reform titlements. this was after he had been in the office for four years and i had an opportunity to speak with the president
forward with a plan that gives the biggest tax rate in the world to the richest. paying for it with huge slashes in programs for middle class working people and the poor. call it ryan shrugged. it kills the president's health care plan outright in its crib. dumps medicare for a cheapskate voucher scheme. and offloads medicaid on to the states and steals from the ordinary people, that old 47%, and gives a bundle to the elite at the top. why is ryan doing this? you just have to ask, why after getting beaten and rejected in the presidential election last november is the vice presidential candidate coming out here trying to etch-a-sketch the whole thing, pretend the election never happened? tell me, where's ryan express, taking the republican party further off the cliff? if he's giving up -- what's he doing? giving us a souvenir roadmap of where they all went wrong? in a moment we'll be joined by congresswoman debbie wasserman-schultz. with us now, "washington post's" ezra klein and msnbc political analyst. thank you, ezra. i want to get to the basics. the boxcar information here. why in the

defense. the majority are in favor of limited government and fewer taxes. [applause] thesked if you approved of job the president is doing. and whether or not you approve of the job republicans in congress are doing. last year, president obama had a slight bump in his popularity among this group. this year, the numbers have gone back to where they belong. i still want to meet the 2% who said they approve of us -- approve of his job. last year, the republicans in congress for a 50-50 split. the truth of the matter is that this group or this audience is not convinced the republicans in congress are doing the job they need to do. for the congressional leaders, they need to pay attention to that. then we asked some questions about the budget and how we should fix the budget mess. shock and surprise, we should accomplish it by spending cuts. surprisingly, 16% said we should raise taxes and cut spending. obviously, they did not hear coulter -- ann coulter's speech about what happened last time we agree to spending cuts. he thought we should do targeted cuts and not across the board cuts.
entitlements if republicans agree to somegr revenue from taxes. the other drama are these official budgets that came out. they bear no resemblance to that other drama or to reality. they're essentially campaign documents for each side. the house republicans put out theirs and the senate democrats put out theirs. if it's a family budget it's like sitting down and saying you know, i'm going to get that promotion and we're not going to spend any money when we go out for dinner. these are all hopes and wonderful things but then bump into reality. gwen: if you go on our website you'll see a feature in which john talks about the president going to capitol hill for a charm offensive in 2009. so it feels like everything old is old again. >> that's right. that's why the republicans listening to the charm offensive think we've heard this tune before. there's a lot of mistrust and that's why there's so much e. that has to be done. it's not just going to be pleasing smiles and hand shakes. and that's why everybody involved in this is pretty -- what you hear from the white house, they always say we're
the american public paying the taxes to earmark bulk of their taxes to things they want. if they want the white house press tours. if they want enhanced military. if they want the social programs. you know what will happen? all the things that matt her get supported. the military, police, roads. all the little fluffy stuff will disappear. >> dana: no more solyndra. >> bob: sorry, go ahead. >> eric: one question. "washington post," editorial page, reopen the white house doors, calling it bureaucratic hostage-taking. that is a week later. >> dana: yeah. that is why they could have stopped this from the beginning. i had a good point earlier i said in green room. if you throw the secret service under the bus, why not do it two weeks ago on the night when they announce that the white house tours would be closed? if you throw them under the bus you could have said whoa, secret service. you can't close the white house tours. we will figure this out. the white house will save the day. blame the secret service on that end. instead, they made everybody look bad. >> bob: the secret service agent that spok
-term spending that we need to deal with. but he's going to hold hostage the fact that he wants to raise taxes on the american people. >> again, if the president wants to let our unwillingness to raise taxes get in the way, then we're not going to be able to set differences aside and focus on what we agree on. >> so with -- obama himself down played the outreach during remarks last night to his policy armoring for ak action. >> the press in washington has been reporting about obama's charm offensive. all i've been doing is calling up folks and trying to see if we can breakthrough some of the gobbledygook of our politics here. >> joining me this morning is tennessee republican congresswoman diane black who is scheduled to speak tomorrow at cpac and she attended yesterday's meeting president obama. it's great to have you here. i want to start out talking about speaker boehner. he has an op-ed out today in the "washington post" saying that for all of washington's focus on the president's outreach to republicans, its his engagement to members of his own party determines if we succeed. this was sai
